  • McRay hired to lead MCATC

    Career and technical education is where Christina McRay got her start.
    McRay was a business education teacher in Bullitt County for eight years before coming back to her native Marion County to serve as assistant principal at Marion County High School in 2010. In 2014, she became principal at Lebanon Middle School. While she has enjoyed her time leading LMS, returning to the career and technical education field is an opportunity she couldn’t pass up.
    “It’s always been in my heart,” McRay said, referring to career and technical education.

  • Change of heart

    Butch Cecil isn’t afraid to admit that he was uneducated and misinformed when he signed the recallable nickel petition in 2007.
    He and his wife had just moved back to his native home of Marion County.
    He had just bought into the family farm, renovated his home and spent a considerable amount of money. So, when he saw a petition sitting on the counter at Blandford’s Store, he was curious.
    “What’s this?” Cecil remembers asking.
    “A petition to not raise your taxes,” someone in the store answered.
